ABSTRACT
The article discusses a study on the effects of various diets on tooth decay. It was found that guinea pigs that were given a diet low in vitamins developed dental problems associated with decalcification. However, the teeth could be recalcified if the guinea pigs were put on a healthy diet again. These experiments show that diet is directly related to overall dental health.
